Just for reference some users pointed me to some streams that won't play in Kodi (green, red and yellow artifacts on the screen) although they play fine in vlc. It is not of high priority for me but can be usefull for moving kodi forward. You can find those streams here (labeled as HDR_HVEC):


A stream example url is: https://sylvan.apple.com/Aerials/2x/Videos/LA_A006_C008_2K_HDR_HEVC.mov

This is an ffmpeg issue you can even reproduce with ffplay. ffmpeg incorrectly identifies video codec as dvvideo and fails. If you force hevc decoder, it will play

I'll compile the latest ffmpeg and check if the issue still happens, if so I'll report in ffmpeg trac. I'll leave the trac ticket reference here when I'm done with it. Thanks
